Study Summary

Previous studies suggest that changes in metabolism due to the effects of aging might serve as a potential for therapeutic agents. The investigating lab developed a pulse method combining multiple stable isotopes to study multiple metabolic pathways in the same individual simultaneously. By measuring whole-body metabolism in a large group of older adults, the investigators may be able to unravel age-related deterioration in protein turnover (synthesis and breakdown) that contributes to impaired functional capacity. Metabolic profiles could explain differences in pathways in the aging process with special interest in metabolism of amino acids as they have been associated with aging-related disorders.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
